Easter activities

Get your unit crafting this Easter and make some animal jars to be filled with delicious chocolatey treats! And once all the sweets are eaten, they make great storage jars too.

We spotted this crafty idea of making Tissue Animal Jars on Hobbycraft’s blog! Start by covering your jars in a layer of tissue paper – white for a bunny and yellow for a chick.

While the jars are drying, prepare your decorations. To decorate the chick you’ll need two googly eyes and some card. Cut out two wings and a beak from yellow card. For the rabbit, you’ll need a pom pom for his tail, two googly eyes, pipe cleaners for the whiskers and card to cut out some ears. Once the jar is dry, attach your decorations using glue.

Your jars are now ready to be filled with treats to make a great Easter gift. Take a look at Hobbycraft’s blog for full instructions.
